How does receiving an Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN) help you?

When you receive an ABN:

- The Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN) protects you from unexpected financial liability in situations where Medicare denies payment. The “bad news” is that Medicare possibly will not pay. The “good news” is that you now have the chance to choose whether or not to receive the service or item.

- The ABN helps you to make a knowledgeable consumer decision about whether to get the service or item and be ready to pay for it (that is, either out of your own pocket or by your other insurance coverage) or to decide not to receive it.

- The ABN lets you have your claim assessed by Medicare if you do receive the service or item. This also means that you will have the right to appeal Medicare’s decision.
